Make your favorite classic Disney movie characters a part of your world with these cute and nostalgic Disney inspired rooms!
There's a special place in my heart for Disney characters as they were a big part of my childhood. Walt Disney, and those who create under his name, has provided children with a source of guidance, entertainment, and laughter for decades. Today, I want to talk about 3 early Disney creations: Winnie the Pooh, Mickey Mouse, and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Here, you will learn a bit about these Disney classics and how they changed over time. I am going to tell you how you can use these characters in your own Disney inspired rooms, including my suggestions for color schemes.
Mickey Mouse is a funny, respectful, and cute anthropomorphic animal cartoon character and the official mascot of The Walt Disney Company. He was created by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks at Walt Disney Studios in 1928. Mickey Mouse’s character is known for wearing red shorts, large yellow shoes, and white gloves. Mickey has become one of the most recognizable cartoon characters in the world. In fact, most people don't even need to see Mickey Mouse to recognize him, as a glimpse of his signature large ears or the tone of his upbeat voice is a dead giveaway.
The traditional Mickey Mouse has transformed greatly over the years: from a beady-eyed more mouse looking character into one quite human and anthropomorphic in appearance and actions. Mickey generally appears alongside his girlfriend and love interest Minnie Mouse, his pet dog Pluto, and his friends Donald Duck and Goofy. Children seem to gravitate towards Mickey Mouse as he is known for his adventures, having a good time, and his overall happy nature.
Mickey Mouse themed interiors have a yellow, red, black, and white color scheme. This color scheme is based on the physical attributes and clothing of Mickey Mouse. Check out this modern bedroom featuring a monochromatic scheme and red and yellow color pops. This is the perfect way to incorporate Mickey into your room's decor.
Isn’t this just the perfect Disney themed bedroom? I mean, it’s totally Mickey! I really love the gallery wall with the abstract looking Mickey Mouse prints. Plus, that Mickey Mouse bed is really cute too. Honestly, everything about this Disney room decor is perfect. The trunk full of stuffed Mickeys is awesome, and the room is sleek, stylish, and completely Mickey!
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is based on a German fairy tale adapted by Disney and turned into a successful franchise of theater shows, films, and products. The fairy tale, Snow White, once known across much of Europe, is today one of the most famous fairy tales worldwide. The Brothers Grimm published it in 1812 in the first edition of their collection Grimms' Fairy Tales. The Disney version of Snow White, made in 1937, is less gory than the Grimms’ and leaves out the evil queen’s cannibalism. Grimms’ tales were always really dark, so I for one am glad Disney left out that bit!
Snow White, like many other fairy tales adapted by Disney, was transformed into a new version of the old tale to be better suited for children. The fairy tale features such elements as the magic mirror, the poisoned apple, the fairness of Snow’s skin, the glass coffin, and the characters of the Evil Queen and the seven dwarfs.
Snow White inspired interiors are composed of a color scheme with blue, red, and yellow. In addition to these three colors, basic colors such as black and white are sometimes included in the designs as well. The story of Snow White takes place in the woods, so wood and twig inspired decor and animal, apple, and general nature inspired decor will fit Snow White designs well.
I love how modern these Disney accessories are, and they very much embody the story of Snow White. You have tree-like decor to symbolize the forest, a tiny chipmunk to show her love of forest creatures, and of course, a shiny red apple. You could easily add these items into your current space, and use them as Disney princess decor.
How awesome is this mural? It’s like you literally stepped into the animated film! If you're really into Snow White, this is the perfect decor addition for you!
With cute decals like this, you can easily add Disney into your decor! Go for just Snow White, or you can add in other princesses for an epic princess themed room! And what about that sweet chair? It’s perfect for smaller spaces, or even kids' rooms!
Some might like to include the seven dwarfs, too. The color options for Snow White’s companions are the colors of their hats. Here are a couple of Disney bedroom ideas inspired by the seven dwarfs themselves!
I love how this bedroom incorporates both the dwarfs’ home, and their place of work in the mines! And the tiny little door there is precious. I wonder if it leads to a play room, or maybe even a closet.
And who could forget the Evil Queen? She is such an interesting character in the story of Snow White. Though she is quite wicked, she adds dimension and zest to the film. The color options for the Evil Queen are purple, black, red, and gray. The shades of these colors should generally be dark to reflect the character. In order to pull off an Evil Queen design, you may need to get a bit wicked yourself.

Once Upon a Time did a wonderful job on their Evil Queen decor. I love everything about it, from the style of the furniture to the tree wallpaper. So clever! That wallpaper is certainly a must if you want Disney wall decor that's Evil Queen style.
This here is gorgeous inspiration for an Evil Queen Disney interior design! The colors, the lighting, the furniture: it’s all very dark, powerful, and brooding. All of which describe the Evil Queen!
Winnie-the-Pooh was a beloved 1926 children’s book created by A. A. Milne. Although not originally conceived by Disney, Pooh Bear was licensed by Disney in 1961. After Milne’s death, Disney turned this children’s book character into a series of feature films including The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, The Tigger Movie and Piglet's Big Movie, and into a TV series named The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. The story of Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger, Rabbit, Owl, Kanga, Roo, and Christopher Robin and their adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood took the world by storm with its positive messages for children of all ages. The characters’ wise words and life lessons taught children the basics of having good character, enjoying life, and being a good person.
Winnie-the-Pooh inspired interiors usually have a red, yellow, and green color scheme. The red is derived from Pooh Bear’s famous red t-shirt. The yellow represents Pooh himself, and the green represents the Hundred Acre Wood. The color blue is sometimes included to represent the sky. Because the characters in the series typically went on adventures, you may want to incorporate some attributes of nature into your design such as flowers, trees, vines, and butterflies. And, of course, many Winnie-the-Pooh themed interiors include the characters themselves as a part of the design.
This Disney baby nursery is so sweet! I cannot get over how soft and precious it is. The wall art with the young Winnie the Pooh characters is probably the cutest thing I have come across in a while. They’re so tiny and little! So precious! If you're in the market for Disney nursery ideas, here's a great one to start with!
Thanks for reading! I hope these Disney inspired interiors were as wonderfully nostalgic for you as they were for me. Please share our post and leave a comment to let us know your favorite!
